A 27-year old member of New Brunwick’s Tobique First Nation has won this year’s Polaris Music Prize.

Singer and musicologist Jeremy Dutcher performed the winning album ‘Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa’ in his native language

Dutcher says it was culmination of five years of work that involved digging into an archive of recordings of his ancestors dating back nearly a century.

The Polaris prize is considered one of Canada’s most prestigious music awards. Former winners include Buffy Sainte-Marie and Arcade Fire.
